There's two choppers to get us to the Irvine show. Chris jumps in the smaller of the two with Hoppy, Chris Wood and Geoff, while everyone else piles into the bigger one. When Will enquires as to where the singer has gone, Phil considers that he may have chosen to take the crew 'copter to make sure that if something happened to one of the two choppers, "at least the demos for the next record will definitely get finished". With that cheery note of optimism, we pull away for the evening show.
Which brings me to our most recent show. Halfway through the Houston gig, Neill tells me that Rik and Russell, the show's carpenters were up in the roof and saw a racoon running across the lighting grid. Now, we're not talking something the size of a squirrel scurrying about above us - in fact, it was so big that they initially thought it was a dog up there. Somewhat concerned, they spoke to one of the venue folks who told him that it in fact lives up there quite happily with it's family and doesn't mind the noise one bit.
